It’s encouraging to see that the small town of Spur, Texas (population 1,088) has announced that they are welcoming tiny houses as supposedly declared by their mayor, Manuel Herrera.

But let’s clear this up right here right now. We are getting somewhere. But you might be a little disappointed to learn the truth here as explored by Andrew Odom of Tiny r(E)volution below. Are tiny houses on trailers easily permitted? We’re not sure.

But it is very clear that creatively simple and safe tiny homes on foundations are welcome with open arms. We’re just not sure about the ones on wheels. Although I personally don’t see why not. But have a read for yourself below. Either way I’m convinced this is good news for the tiny house movement. What do you think?

I had to let you know as soon as I found out that the Odom family tiny house for sale over at Tiny r(E)volution.

If you’re not familiar with their tiny home I featured it a while back on this post after they had recently finished it.

But if you’ve been looking for the right used tiny house to buy, this might be the right one at the right price. They’re only asking $16,100.

I think that’s quite the fair deal… Might even be a steal of a deal considering most tiny homes of that size and quality are demanding prices of $35,000, $45,000 and even $55,000 at times. More than likely it’s already sold.

I think you will enjoy this custom built tiny house on wheels by Tiny Diamond Homes.

It’s built on an 18 foot double axle trailer so you can move it around just like a travel trailer.

The tiny home is equipped with a full kitchen, bathroom and sleeping loft for two.

And it’s nicely decorated too. Let’s take a look inside.

Hot on the heels of his e-Cours(E), Small Home, Big Life, Andrew Odom is at it again with a new online offering.

This one is super cool and I couldn’t wait to tell you about it.

Drew is going to teach us all how to decorate our tiny homes in style!

I love this idea that your tiny house doesn’t have to be just a rustic wood cabin. There are so many possible options available and the only thing limiting you is your imagination. Well, maybe the space a little. I would love to see someone put a slide in their tiny house!  (Anyone want to accept that challenge – Deek?)

I encourage you to read more of my thoughts below.

I have been part of the tiny house community since I first saw Jay Shafer on Oprah back in 2008.

We used that inspiration to begin building our tiny house in 2009. As you might imagine, since that time I have seen a lot of other tiny house blogs and become part of the small but growing community of tiny house builders.

There are so many great designs and ideas out there now and many tiny house builders are creating some amazing homes that are smaller than most traditional bedrooms. I thought I might share my favorite tiny houses – in no particular order.
